I very much enjoyed this book. It is set in 2043, and America has turned into ice, and some survivors moved to a new island between Hawaii and California, and established a new country - America Pacifica. 15 year old Darcy grew up there, and it is a very unequal society with her and her mom barely scrapping by. When her mom disappears, Darcy goes on a hunt to find her and in doing so uncovers secrets about the ruling people of America Pacifica, the mainland, and about her mom. This future world is very interesting with a lot of things made from seaweed modified to become fuel, building materials, etc. But the material isn't very good, and the sidewalks melt when it rains for instance. The plot really moves along and kept my attention. I kept reading, wanting to know what happens next and what other interesting or crazy character Darcy was going to met. The book ends and does not answer all your questions which leads me to think the author was setting up for a sequel. Which if there is one, I would want to read!
